KBR Inc. has announced that it has developed a new propane dehydrogenation (PDH) technology (K-PRO™) for propylene selectivity and conversion.
This technology is based on KBR's catalytic olefins technology (K-COT™) which is a fluidised-bed technology for converting low-value olefinic, paraffinic or mixed streams into high-value propylene and ethylene.
K-PRO does not require precious metals. Plants based on this new technology will be designed as stand-alone propylene production units independent of a steam cracker or a FCC unit. Additionally, existing PDH operating units can be modified incorporate the technology.
